Child’s Wintery Cape by Kristin

Hello Britex readers, I’m Kristin from skirt as top and I’m so thrilled to be here today! I have wanted to sew a cape for my 4 year old daughter for about a year now, and partnering with Britex Fabrics was the perfect opportunity for me to sew a soon-to-be-released cape pattern by Oliver + S with some truly wonderful wool.

I chose this peacock blue midweight wool for a playful twist, since my daughter is only four years old and I always aim to make her clothing both beautiful and fun. Sewing with this gorgeous wool was a dream, and in person it almost shines. My husband even remarked on how nice it looked – it’s a level above the fabrics I typically sew with and the fabric quality is apparent at first glance!

Diane Von Furstenburg Cotton Voile

Jeanette loves this Diane Von Furstenburg cotton voile. The pattern is a tangle of bramble-y branches over dime-sized kelly green dots.This fabric is soft as a cloud, and would make a lovely wrap to wear while riding Arabian ponies in the desert. Later, you can rest near a grove of Poplar trees, sip on hot tea in small glasses, and nibble thin buttery raisin cookies.
